Our latest fundraising venture, The Great Brussels Charity Bake Off 2016, organised by Brussels New Generation, a British Chamber of Commerce network, has just drawn to a close.
Community Help Service is committed to the health and safety of our staff, volunteers and clients. During the current coronavirus situation, we have put in place guidelines which protect our community whilst reducing the impact on our services. This includes reducing our in-office staff and using video conferencing for our meetings and training.
1) Clients must wear a mask at all times whilst visiting the Centre unless explicitly stated by their therapist. They must also sanitise their hands upon entry.
2) Clients should arrive as close to their appointment time as possible and will be greeted at the door by their therapist. The waiting room is not in use.
3) Do not attend your appointment if you develop flu symptoms or respiratory complaints.
4) It is important that should you experience any COVID symptoms or test positive following a visit to our Centre, you notify CHS in writing, especially if your visit occurred within the 2 days prior to your symptoms appearing, so that appropriate action can be taken promptly.
In these troubled times, remember our telephone Helpline is always open - 02 648 40 14. Our Clinical Team recommend this helpful article, from the Child Mind Institute in New York, which deals with ways of helping children cope with traumatic events. Please pass on to anyone you know who may be in need of this.
Get together a team of four and raise money for CHS while doing so!
The third edition of this popular event, run by the young professional network of the British Chamber of Commerce in Belgium, takes place on Monday March 21, with a cocktail reception on Monday February 22.
